This bracket is in first place in Yahoo!’s $50K Best Bracket Challenge…but forgot to pick a winner.

Might've been a click away from a big payday.

What a nightmare.

So, you’ve decided to put Syracuse into your Final Four, even though no No. 10 seed has ever been there before.  Maybe you have ties with the Orange, maybe you decided to be ambitious with a team you liked this season, or maybe you’re downright nuts.

Either way, despite all odds, they make it. You were one of the .23 percent of brackets that predicted it to happen — And suddenly, you find yourself atop the leaderboards in Yahoo!’s $50K Best Bracket Challenge.

The only problem is: you didn’t pick a winner.

This is the dilemma that the bracket ‘Jahmo Syracuse’ faces going into the Final Four.  The bracket correctly picked all four teams remaining (Villanova, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Syracuse) and sits in first place with 109 points.  However, with no winner selected, ‘Jahmo Syracuse’ now has zero chance of winning the $50,000.

Look at all that green.

Whether the owner of that beautiful bracket is just realizing it now or found out after the first round and said “eh, Syracuse probably won’t make it anyways,” we feel for you, Jahmo.
